    Default Searching for related words in a database

    Hi, <BR><BR>I am currently building a text search engine to search a database and <BR>I have been able to develop a system where I can do exact matching but<BR>I want to be able to deal with related words. For example if I typed in the search term working I want to bring up results with the words work and worked as well as working. <BR><BR>Another posting has suggested I could try a simple algorithm, like stripping the word back to it&#039;s root, removing all common suffixes, such as "ed", "ing", "s", "es", etc. <BR><BR>Does anyone know any examples of this being implemented. <BR><BR>I am using Access as my database and SQL to query the database. <BR>The programming language I am using is ASP. <BR><BR>Regards, <BR><BR>Matt Kirn
